NJIT civil engineer receives NSF grant to study storm's impact on Jersey Shore
Date:11/19/2012

edu/news/2012/2012-260.php">http://www.njit.edu/news/2012/2012-260.php, who was one of 20 young professors hired in the fall of 2012, is a nationally-known water expert with a distinguished history of publication and research. He has investigated the Exxon Valdez spill and the BP Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf of Mexico, and he served on the National Academies Committee that evaluated the blowout's impact on the Gulf of Mexico.

He's also served on the Environmental Protection Agency's Advisory Board for natural gas extraction and shale formations, and has studied floodplain delineation and contamination of urban streams for FEMA. In terms of scholarship, he has published more than 80 articles in scholarly journals that include Nature, Geoscience and Water Resources Research.

His goal is to continue to collaborate with fellow professors on publishable research that furthers science while also advising governmental agencies that improve the public good and the environment. "Our current research will help officials respond to a storm that wreaked havoc on the shoreline," Boufadel says. "NJIT has the technological expertise to become the steward of the Jersey shoreline -- and that's precisely what we intend to become."
